More grille pics! Close that hood!

Looks good. I want to either do that or get the sport grille. There is the issue that you are then left with the awkward amount of silver trim around the fogs....I gotta figure something out there.

Thanks Mikael!
Yeah, i'm thinking to take a look at the fog surrounds next, matte black would tone them down nicely. Depends if they can be dismantled easily or not, but so far everything cosmetic on this car seems easy to pull apart
A few more pics i took, as requested...

Finished the cosmetic mods on the front today, took off the foglight surrounds and painted the silver parts flat black, same as the grill stripe above. The covers dont dismantle, the silver seems to be molded in somehow, so no choice but to mask them up for painting. Pretty straightforward stuff...


After installing i took some shots indoor & outside, looks pretty good IMO...

very well done with the fog lights, I would have gone a bit lighter black on the grille and darker for the tails but best blue 08 STI overall I've seen

Thanks, man appreciate it
If you saw it now you'd be less impressed, ive been too busy to wash it for the last 3 weeks. The BBS are just nasty, and the paint is covered in haze from all the smoke in the air here. Its almost as bad as the Mondeo gets back in Shanghai
